The Cool Pix Photography Camp for Teens met for one week during the summer of 2013. Instructed by Jessica Kalmar with the assistance of Sascha Steinberg these young photographers photographed Pittsburgh's South Side, the Frick Art & Historical Center, the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium, Phipps Conservatory, and the Cathedral of Learning. Photographers are: Oisin Bessko, Leah Berman-Kress, Julian Brooks, Hannah Collins, Melanie Deis, Rachel Fleming, Rachel Goehring, Alexus Hayes, Valerie Ricchuito and Stephanie Wolfe.
Silver Eye Center for Photography is dedicated to celebrating photography, both as an expressive art form and as a medium that brings to light the details and larger stories that influence and inform an understanding of ourselves and the world. With our singular commitment to exhibiting and promoting contemporary photography and photo-based multimedia, we are unique to Pittsburgh and the surrounding region.
Silver Eye Center for Photography thanks its generous funders for support of this program: Allegheny Regional Asset District, A.W. Mellon Educational and Charitable Trust of The Pittsburgh Foundation, The Heinz Endowments, Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, and many individual supporters. This project supported in part by the Hive Fund for Connected Learning at The Sprout Fund.
